Sawtul Islam: A bookshop hidden in the heart of Riverside
Sawtul Islam is a small bookshop catering for the Muslim community of Cardiff.
The bookshop’s name means the “the voice of Islam”, as its owner Mohammed was very kind to translate to us.
Its collection contains historical books, Arabic language textbooks, copies of the Quran and prayer books.
Mohammed arrived to Cardiff from Bangladesh 25 years ago and now considers the city his home. Due to its past trading connections, the capital of Wales is one of the most ethnically diverse cities in the UK and its Muslim community numbers over 11,000 members and 20 mosques.
